Lois Nettleton plays a scared and confused wife. When her husband apparently falls from a cliff and is injured, she runs for help. However, the husband's body isn't there--and no one can find him or even prove he was there in the first place. So she hires Frank Cannon to find him. The problem is, she is talks over the details with him, it's obvious she's not being forthright about her husband. In fact, through the first half of the episode, she was a horrible client and in real life I wonder if any private detective would work with someone like this--a possible weak point in the story. In the end, it turns out that there is a conspiracy afoot--a very elaborate one and one in which the wife is NOT involved--though it sure looks that way. In fact, the real guilty party does a lot to get her convicted of a crime. What the crime is, how Cannon solves this and how a Rich Little-like impressionist is a key to solving the case--all this you'll need to see for yourself in this interesting episode. Worth seeing, though having Nettleton act so guilty at the beginning never really made much sense and should have been re-written.
